Zack wins Tycoons in Schools’ KS4 Award and Highly Commended Award

Teens 2 Go launched by 14-year-old Zack Griffin, won KS4 Award and the Highly Commended award.

Zack created a business that enables skilled teenagers to earn money sharing their expertise with peers and members of the community.

While Zack taught classes in computer coding, he trained others to deliver sessions in “academics, music and sport”.

Zack said: “It feels really good to have won the highly commended award – I feel really proud to have been a part of the competition. I’ve now got a lot more enterprising skills that will stand me in good stead for later on in life.

Tycoon in Schools is an annual competition that challenges youngsters to run their own real-life businesses using a loan of up to £1000 provided by the Peter Jones Foundation.
